Lisa Rinna was trying on dresses this week. It’s about time for filming the opening of RHOBH so many are guessing this is what she is wearing. This gold number was custom-made for her by Sergio Hudson. I kind of love it so I wanted to share it with you and get your thoughts.
Also, I know you guys keep telling me differently, but I have seen no signs that Eileen is filming with RHOBH. I have seen Rinna and Eileen on a hike recently that might have been filmed but I have not seen Eileen with any of the housewives other than Rinna which makes me think she is probably an FOH this season. Also, it’s almost time to select the season seven taglines. I was hoping you guys could offer some suggestions for the RHOBH!
When it comes to RHOA, Ex-housewife, Nene has been insanely busy. She has only been in Atlanta briefly where she was advising someone on a multilevel marketing scheme. They were trying to pull her into that. That is the last refuge of the broke. For her sake, she needs to walk away from that faster than a senior citizen at a time share presentation circa 1984. She has been spending a LOT of time in Miami. Enough to make me have wishful thoughts that they will resurrect RHOM with Nene on it. That is just my wishful thinking though, I loved that franchise. She recently hosted a party in LA for the owner of the Abbey. She has stand up gigs in NYC and Chicago this month. That’s a huge step after starting out in Charlotte, North Carolina. The woman is still hustling. Also, To Tell The Truth was picked up for another run to be aired next summer. No word if she has been asked to return, but I expect she will be. She had good chemistry with the other regulars from what I observed. Continue reading

Last Monday, Kroy Biermann officially accepted his new contract with the Buffalo Bills. This week, the seven members of his adorable family are adjusting to life without him. While Kim already misses her husband, she has a lot of ties to Western New York.
“Buffalo is like everywhere in my life,” Zolciak-Biermann told Buffalobills.com. “My parents grew up in Western New York. My dad (Joe) is from Buffalo and my mom (Karen) is from Springville. Then my aunts live in Rochester. My chiropractor, my chef, they’re all from Western New York. My chef went to St. John Fisher College.”
“My dad was born in Buffalo. My dad is Buffalo Bills obsessed to a whole other level,” she said. “If the Bills lost my dad was in a horrible mood and we were not to talk to him. That was my entire life. He still wears the zebra pants that the people wore like 20 years ago. They’re so horribly worn out. He wears the old sweatshirts. He’s a whole other level.”
Well, um everyone was there. And by everyone I mean the housewives plus potential housewives, Lena, Sheree, and Mallorie. Lena is the one who had been wanting to get married on the show for a few seasons now. It’s starting to look like this could be her year. Mallorie has been called in to film with Cynthia and support her through the divorce proceedings and her move to the new lake house.
First, check out the step and repeat. First of all, what the hell is up with the housewives and their obsession with the step and repeat? It’s not a stand alone thing. It is a backdrop for a red carpet event that has sponsors. If there is no red carpet for celebrity arrivals, it’s just a dumb sign that makes for a crappy backdrop. It makes even less sense in this setting since it’s just a big vinyl sign that says Phaedra multiple times and has a photo of her book. There is absolutely nothing on the sign that mentions what the charity does. Much like Phaedra’s Pfoundation Phlyers, it just looks like an advertisement for whatever Phaedra is selling.
Next, see that lady holding up the Phaedra shirt? I received several photos of the event and she was the sole person in each booth buying a product. From what I could tell, turnout was quite low.
Phaedra Parks is serious about her desire to become the next Cynthia McKinney (member her?) or that wacky Florida woman with the cowboy hats, or whatever will put her in front of a camera pretending to care about the latest media worthy cause. That boys and girls is her storyline this year. I’m already sick of it. First she was at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia (while Drama was trying to bomb her office) trying to interview people as if she was some sort of news correspondent, only for people to realize when they went to sign the release that they had just been had by a RHOA and refusing to sign.
Now rumor has it that she is going to get involved with the flooding in Louisiana. Don’t get me wrong, that would be a noble act, but this is Phaedra we are talking about. Tomorrow, the RHOA will be filming a garage sale, excuse me, if you are a RHOA, it’s a “Pop Up Shop” to raise money for Phaedra’s newest charity. In June, coincidentally, just as filming was starting Phaedra formed a charity called Phaedra Foundation despite the fact that there is already a foundation by that name in California. Since the domain name for the website was already taken, she threw and extra ‘p’in there to register her domain as Phaedrapfoundation. I’m not kidding. In April, before the charity was registered she was promising to set up a kids camp in Flint, Michigan because that was the big news story. I don’t believe she was ever able to set up a kids camp there. Perhaps it was because of the water situation?
According to Daily Mail Linnethia Monique Leakes, was hit with a Federal Tax Lien on July 22 in Georgia court. The IRS wants a total of $824,366.01 in back taxes for the year 2014, according to court documents. How could she possibly owe that much in taxes? Well, in 2014 she was paid well under a million dollars by RHOA, but also received a six figure income from DWTS where she placed seventh on the show. She also had income from her role on Cinderella that year and got an advance on her clothing line which also began in 2014. And she did a few other paid appearances and sold a bunch of t-shirts and crap. In nearly every one of those instances, Nene was paid as an independent contractor which means she got the checks with no taxes taken out and received a copy of the 1099 which was sent to the IRS by the employers. I guess she thought she just didn’t need to file taxes.
According to my calculations, using the tax amount as the known variable, Nene make approximately $2.1 million in 2014 and did not file a tax return. She did buy that giant house where she never lives. And the IRS is grateful for that, because they have placed a lien on the property.
According to the lien, it looks like she has ten years to refile. But I would not count on that. The IRS will be quite unhappy with the lack of filings and will now look into her previous and future years very closely. Something tells me this was not a one time thing.
While we had some uplifting news about Kenya Moore today, the latest news about Phaedra Parks is, as usual, about a felon. As you recall, while Phaedra Parks was in Washington with all the other political idiots at the DNC, her former client and Angela Stanton’s former boyfriend was hunting her down in Atlanta. Drama (aka Terence Cook) was in the building where Phaedra keeps her latest law office last month, but in the wrong office, apparently her name is not on the directory of the building, or the door of the main office where she rents space, or he was just confused or high or all of the above. While there, he became agitated when he was told she didn’t work in the office he was in. He said something about having a bomb strapped to his leg and had to be arrested by the police while SWAT did a bomb search that showed up nothing.
After that, both Phaedra and Drama’s mama contacted TMZ to let them know it was all a big misunderstanding. Or that the cops racially profiled him as a gang member based on his long white t-shirt or that he was just dropping off a CD or perhaps it was a mixed tape. At any rate, Drama is totally innocent and Phaedra was going to hunt down a real live criminal attorney to represent him.
